    --------------

    This past round of questions were selected by Tundra_Torque.
    Thanks to that fan for their help!!!

    The questions that were asked in the previous Q&A & will be answered in a couple weeks as follows (please do not repeat them, or questions from previous Q&As):

    1. Tundra_Torque: Since all of the 200x figures were eventually revealed before the sub drive ended, will the same happen with the 2016 sub drive, which would include photos of figures sculpted at the time of the drive as well as the names of the characters yet to be sculpted?

    2. Darkspecter: Many characters have received some of their fan-demanded accessories as pack-ins included with later figures. Fans have been asking for Netossa's missing mask for years. Will this be a future pack-in?

    3. facet: When Scott Neitlich was developing new characters for MOTUC to help move the brand forward (for example: Red Shadow, Bandwidth, Golden Rod, Snarl the Snow Thief, etc), he said he had notes and ideas for how introduce and include them in the line. Will Mattel be using these ideas for developing these characters in the mythos?

    4. TUC138: Is the upcoming $60.00 holiday item a premium priced figure, a 2-pack, a beast, or a vehicle?

    5. EmaHalJordan: Will the Widgets will be produced for release in the MOTUC line, either as their own release or as an extra accessory to another figure?

    --------------

    So ask those questions!

    And here's hoping for the return of Power-Con!

    Is there any chance to see a character paying tribute to Snake Mountain down on the road ?
    There are fantastic fan arts waiting to be found on the web;
    and CJ Edwards has drawn one of the most iconic if you ask me .

    With having stated you are aware of Crita's importance and popularity are you aware of which version the fans are wanting most so that we don't end up with another Star Sisters dibocal.

    531 fans voted in this final character poll. The results are listed below, ranked from most popular at the top to least popular at the bottom. These fan poll results will be forwarded to Mattel for their consideration. Thank you to everyone who voted!

    1. Lord Masque (Filmation)
    2. Vultak (Filmation)
    3. Granita (Filmation, MOTU 80s daily newspaper comic)
    4. Despara (New 52 DC comic)
    5. Dylamug (Filmation)
    6. Hunga the Harpy (Filmation)
    7. General Sunder (Filmation)
    8. Tuskador / Insyzor (NA toy)
    9. Horde Wraith (200x cartoon)
    10. Crita (standard dress version- Jetlag)
    11. Miro (200x cartoon)
    12. Lodar (vintage MOTU mini-comic)
    13. Lizorr (NA toy)
    14. Quakke (NA toy)

    The dress (witch version) has always been more requested.

    Now that 200X, Filmation and POP have all had mini-subs, are there any future plans to do the same for New Adventures? That is the one era that is currently under represented and could use the 4H treatment.

    With more and more people customizing figures today has Mattel every thought about releasing MOTU figures you can mix and match and I'm not talking about just the head and armor but the whole figure(legs,arms,hands,feet,shins,forarms ect.)?

    When asking about possible new figures, always it has been stated that Mattel is open to them if the demand was high enough. Because it is clear that all of the to-be-done characters are hardly enough popular to get same subscription sale performance as before, are you considering now lower quotas to make a go of a sub (maybe adjusting prices)? Is it now a preorder system on the table?

    There are so many talented fans out there, writing stories, drawing comics, taking awesome pictures and so on. These works are often at a completely professional level and would, surely, promote MOTU in a great way, for Mattel.
    Would there ever come a time when Mattel could consider letting some of these artists produce their work on license..?
    Leech sucks..!

    We've seen many one-shot villains from the Filmation He-Man series in MOTUC (Shokoti, Batros and even Nepthu) but none of the independent villains from the She-Ra series. If 2016 goes through, can we expect to see any non-Horde villains like Mortella, Hunga the Harpy, Baron Condore or King Darkspur?

    When Filmation Hordak was revealed, there was a huge outrage by the fans since the figure did not come with Filmation style head, bone border cowl & armour ! What are the chances for these 3 missing items in the future ? Can we expect these by the end of MOTUC 2015 ? Or we'll have to wait for 2016 & beyond ?

Mattel will give me the another variants of these same characters ! However, there is very little chance for your Kayo, or Kitrina or Vultak or any of your desired characters if you fail to support the 2.0's & variants in 2016.... or in the future !

    Now that Mattel has produced the Wind Raider & the complete Battle Ram what are the chances of Mattel offering the Roton or Attack Track with the Tops that opened and closed like the Model kits had?
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    Is there any chance fans will get an opportunity to purchase the Mini-Masters and Snake Mountain that were created for the failed subscription? If I recall, most of these were already sculpted.

    What happens to figures when they are returned to Digital River? Are they just disposed of, or are they examined for QC flaws?

    With both rebranding and new packaging being discussed for 2016, have those now in charge of the MOTU lines given serious thought to how many subscriptions from MOC collectors you're likely to loose with a 2016 rebranding/repackaging, and weighed that number against the number of online customers you can reasonably expect to gain due to that type of a refresh? This isn't retail and thus it seems to me that for a line like this you stand to loose more subscriptions than you're likely to gain if you repackage the line.

    First, thank you for making the 200x Roboto head. As it is though, Roboto needs a new body since the old one's torso has cracked over time and the shoulders are still reversed. Will there be an opportunity to re-release a Roboto that addresses these concerns (new more stable plastic for the torso, corrected shoulders), along with improvements that would compel a new purchase (two swappable hands, 200x-style shoulder straps/backpack to store weapons, 200x boot covers/shin guards)?

    Would you ever consider looking into buying the rights of remco's the lost world of the warlords and make them an small add on sub? I'm pretty sure they would do pretty well in sales, albeit motuc fans and the remco fans.. also, war beast would be another line from remco that would fit right in motuc..

    Will the new line also have bios like the Classics line or will Mattel do away with bios altogether?

    Any chance Mattel will re-release Giant He-Man but with a newly sculpted accurate vintage head? As a "Heroic Warriors" two pack with Teela perhaps?

    New Adventures figures have been mentioned in the past in a Question and Answer session, alluding we will see more of them. Will collectors ever see all the NA figures made decades ago in MOTU Classics form?
